Velocity Factor is very proud to present another great customer build. This time we have a 2012 VW GTI with significant modifications and improvements.
The main attraction of this car is the K04 upgraded turbo. In order to fully utilize this fantastic turbo, we had to install significant supporting mods. This included:
- APR Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC)
- Neuspeed HI-FLO Air Charge Pipe
- Neuspeed HI-FLO Turbo Discharge Pipe
- Neuspeed Carbon Fiber Intake with Blitz C4 Stainless Steel Filter
- B&B Turbo-back “Stealth” Full Exhaust
- 2012 GTI MKVI DSG Sequential Gearbox Upgrade
- Defi White Racer Boost Gauge
- Audi R8 Ignition Coils
To maximize the performance of the K04 Upgraded Turbo Kit, We also installed a Snow Performance Methanol Injection System. This methanol injection kit features on-board LED warning and status lights. This helps let you know when the system is spraying and gives you a warning in case anything happens to go wrong.
Coupled with the professional tuning from Velocity Factor, all these power components took the car from the 200whp / 203 ft-lb that it had in stock trim to a whopping 385whp / 400 ft-lb at the flywheel!! In order to actually harness all this power, significant performance modifications were needed to the suspension and engine mounting systems. These are the components that we chose to upgrade the suspension system:
- H&R SuperSport Springs
- EuroJet Suspension Motor Mounts
- Lower Dogbone Mounts
- Front Bushings to stop wheel hop and reduce tire-spin
- Whiteline Lower Control Arms
- H&R Front / Rear Sway Bars
We finished off the build with some classy light weight OZ performance wheels with Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires.
All of these top-grade performance parts, coupled with professional tuning from Velocity Factor, combined to deliver a top-notch daily driver that has proven to run consistent 12-second times, trapping at 110mph on pump gas. Needless to say, the customer was ecstatic with the performance that his car now delivers.
